    I know their stuff comes out towards the end of the month usually, but unless it's coming out this coming Wednesday where are the following that were supposed to be out this month:
    Op Spotlight
    Megs Origin #3
    BW Vol. 2 #1
    BW Spotlight #1

    It just seems a little stange I haven't seen any of it yet. Did my comic store forget to pull something for me? Is it all coming Wednesday? Or is IDW just a little late this month?

    The Prime Spotlight is supposed to be out this Wednesday, so it'll be out within its targeted month, but yeah, I'm not sure what's going on with the other three... especially since Megatron: Origin is technically a month behind already...

    Well, I heard that the artist on Megs Origin is sick which was why we had two artists on last issue so that may be the reason. I hope he gets better soon.

    I think this is a result of vacation and Comic Con. Alex Milne is better now and hes actually done with issue 4 of Megatron now.

    Now we just have to wait..

    I met Alex Milne at Comic Con, and he was quite healthy.

    Also, remember that IDW isn't Dreamwave. They actually do way more than just Transformers.

    True but after Dreamwave I'm sure some fans are a little jumpy when books take an extra month or two. I remember books being a month or 2 late than perordering several ne ones, then hearing 2 weeks later they were bankrupt. Some fans(not me) might still be jumpy.

    What's that Best of UK Dinobots thing and what happened to Target 2006? I mean I don't recall there being an ending to Target 2006, or is Dinobots a different title, but continues the story of Target 2006?

    IIRC Target 2006 was published after the story in the Dinobots books. Best of UK Dinobots is reprinting the "Dinobot Hunt" story, though I forget where that one fits in exactly. Been a long time since I read those.

    Good to know things are moving along then. Thanks for the info. And as for other stuff IDW does, I can't wait for Angel season 6.

    I see, well is there a Target 2006 Issue 4 to finish off that story cause I'm pretty sure it didn't end with issue 3 or am I supposed to waste money on these and then still have to get the Titan reprints because IDW doesn't actually finish the dang reprinting?

    The Target 2006 reprint is over. Issue 4 came out July 5th and issue 5 (the conclusion) came out last week (Aug 22).

    Some more info from Ryall:

    What the bloody hell, my bin never had issue 4 last month when I went in. You sure about this? Got any pics of the comic on hand?

    Yes Target 2006 #4 came out like a month ago and #5 came out last week. Its all done now. You'll probably have to get it somewhere else as I believe they may be sold out. At least that is what my local comic book guy told me about #5.

    Thing is I have a bin and they're supposed to put stuff aside for me and I sure as hell don't recall Target 2006 #4 being there when I went in last month to pick up everything, but maybe when I go this month they'll be there. I should do that this weekend to get all my August and July stuff I haven't scored yet, although I don't have a clue how I'm going to pay for them all.

    Do a search for Target 2006 over at Graham Cracker Comics. They have issues 4 & 5 but not regular Roche covers (cover A).

    Just checked Midtown Comics (search Target 2006) same deal. Both regular Roche covers for issue 4 and 5 are out of stock.
